Voices for the Village 2012: A Success!

On Saturday, September 15, 120 Loloma Foundation supporters gathered at the scenic waterfront ZLAC Rowing Club in San Diego.  Guests enjoyed Pacific Rim cuisine and entertainment by Ruby Blue and participating in silent and live auctions in record-breaking Fiji-like temperatures.

The evening was a success with gross donations of $51,000.  Among the evening’s highlights was the presentation of two “Leadership Fundraising” checks by Derek Sabori of Volcom and Dr. Jess Ponting of SurfCredits to help secure medical supplies for our 2013 missions. The checks culminated from funds raised through the sales of Volcom’s Fiji Pro “Give Back Series” for Loloma Foundation merchandise and SurfCredits sustainable surf donation platform for Loloma Foundation earlier this year.

Six live auction items left over from the event will be appearing in an online auction soon.  Stay tuned here at www.lolomafoundation.org for details!
